Jonny Glenn – Like Father Like Son (Spotify)

“A gentle, soulful chord progression that guides the melody and is an accurate mirror of the title and lyrics. Ostensibly a tender love song, Jonny is actually describing being abandoned by his father at a young age, & conveys self-reflective emotions in a bittersweet way. Instrumentally, the song is also a fabulous vehicle for his Hendrix (Little Wing) like guitar work”

-Nagamag.com

Talented Los Angeles newcomer Jonny Glenn is ready to share his most vulnerable offering "Like Father Like Son," the focus track of his debut album, 8, due out next week. The rising, alt-pop artist gets deeply intimate with this new single that shares a piece of his heart and breaks down his walls.

Raised by a single mother in the American South, opportunities at large simply weren't available. Listening to music became his escape; one where anything seemed possible. Pouring his all into his passion, Jonny prepares to set sail with his debut album, aptly titled "8" based on the date December 8th - a powerful day in the cosmos. December 8th is not only Jonny's birth date but the death of the famous astronaut John Glenn (with whom he shares a name) and the assassination of John Lennon - one of his biggest musical influences.

New single "Like Father Like Son" foregoes any superfluous production and rather focuses on the rawness and sincerity in Jonny's voice and lyrics. Accompanied by just a simple yet gorgeous electric guitar, "Like Father Like Son" is Jonny's most honest, impactful, and reflective offering to date.

"My dad left when I was 4 years old," he shares. "Then I grew up. Just my mom and me. It was just the two of us. I'm so thankful to have as strong of a mother as I do. As I've grown into myself and have been taking a deeper dive into myself, I've realized how the trauma of being abandoned affected me.

I grew up always thinking I was more mature than my peers (even though I was the youngest in my grade), or at least had to be. I thought that I was stronger than most. I had become the man of my house at a young age. An 8 year-old 'man.' As a kid, I had no idea how the events of my young life would shape my behavior through adolescence and into becoming a young adult and into my first significant relationships. I made a few mistakes along the way, some of which I thought were similar to those my dad had made and would lead me down a similar path. That scared me.

twitter.com/TheJonnyGlenn

This song is about that - not wanting to be like my dad. And not making any of the mistakes he did. As ironic as it sounds, by facing my fears and my past, I've been able to start breaking the cycle of acting unconsciously and have given my true self a chance of rebirth. No longer do I need to react in order to survive. Through this long process, I am starting to learn how to just be. That has been a true blessing and I feel like I am the closest to true happiness that I've ever been."

"8" sees Jonny explore themes from loneliness and heartache to self-discovery and empowerment. Each song is set to alt-pop soundscapes featuring textural elements of R&B, indie-folk, and electronica making it feel both familiar and different at the same time. From his latest release "Runnin'" a private confessional about young love to his newest powerhouse "Like Father Like Son," Jonny shares his most important life experiences throughout this album.

Combining pop with rock influences, often paying homage to childhood idols Elvis, Freddie Mercury, and Nirvana, Jonny's wide range has garnered worldwide praise. His recent releases have amassed over 3 million streams and over 100,000 monthly listeners. His 8 album is bound to position the rising Jonny for success in the years to come.

Sara Diamond – Say My Name Again (Spotify)

“Sara Diamond strikes again with her creativity skills. Brand new Soul diamond with some R&B samples to enrich the lyrics background. This song worths a try even if the style is not at your taste. Carefully made and balanced work for most ears.”

-Nagamag.com

Sara Diamond shared with us few words about this song: "I went through a messy breakup where it felt like my world was turned upside down. Our original intentions regarding the relationship went up in flames; where we started off wanting to stay in each other’s lives, we ended up at the opposite end, eliminating space for each other completely. This song is a final cry, literally pleading for a do over.”

Over the years, Sara Diamond has crafted an incredibly unique sound, perfectly in tune with her enticing gift as a powerful vocalist. Blending her vocal strength seamlessly with her clever song-writing, her music has caught many ears and cap- tured millions of hearts all over the world.

Ron Eisner – Perfect Lover (Spotify)

“True Retro Soul single with plenty of acoustic sounds and relaxing slow pace. Sit on your cozy couch with a glass of wine and raise a bit your speakers' volume. Concentrate on the passionate singing of Ron Eisner and forget everything else.”

-Nagamag.com

"Perfect Lover" is about love & disillusionment, desire & tragedy, the lengths we go & the masks we wear to feel passion... The song was written on acoustic guitar then later recorded in a studio with 4 of us in a room for basic tracks with overdubs added later and strings added at my home studio.

www.facebook.com/RonEisnerMusic/

While Ron Eisner’s music is deeply rooted in traditional American songwriting, his unique life experiences and genre hopping tendencies give him a sound all his own. Music was originally just a hobby for the Miami based singer/songwriter, as he spent much of his life traveling the world. When his life was turned upside down by a catastrophic car accident on a surf trip to Costa Rica, Ron turned to songwriting as a coping mechanism. Music soon became his sole outlet for expression. He started his career as a member of the ten piece reggae band The Resolvers, which earned him recognition around his home state. As he sharpened his craft, he set out on his own, developing a deeply personal yet universally relatable style, rooted in poetic lyrics and instantly memorable melodies. With the release of his first official tracks in 2021, Ron aims to connect with like minded audiences around the globe.

Lola Lennox – La La Love Me (Video)

“Unpredictable, pure vintage sensation in the year 2021! A pleasant surprise from Lola Lennox bringing you a huge wave of love and happiness. Highly recommended for the Retro Soul fans around.”

-Nagamag.com

Friday 29th January, London, UK – Singer, songwriter and musician, Lola Lennox releases the accompanying music video for her current single “La La Love Me” today.

The music video’s release follows hot on the heels of “La La Love Me” being the most played record on Radio 2 earlier this month and it entering the Top 10 of the UK Radio Airplay Charts.

The accompanying music video for Lola’s “La La Love Me” is directed by her childhood friend, British photographer and director, Grace Pickering (Dua Lipa, Sam Smith, Calvin Harris, Tyler The Creator). It follows Lola around a house while she lives out a daydream, inviting the viewer to join her in a celebration of life, love and colourful fantasy. The video climaxes with a performance in sparkling gold and soft light, highlighting the soulful prowess of the song. During a time where we are not getting out much, “La La Love Me” encourages us to find our own sense of joyful inspiration, even when alone at home.

“In a year where we cannot live normally, I’ve found it uplifting to day dream and go to places in my mind that feel like a colourful oasis, the La La Love Me video is an expression of that. It’s a heightened reality, of colour, sparkling dreams and a party for one. The song expresses the excitement and nerves of having feelings for someone, but ultimately is a celebration of a lust for life. Working with one of my oldest friend’s Grace Pickering as director was a total joy, she understands my taste particularly well because we’ve been dressing up and talking about our style inspirations since we were teenagers. This video was created to excite, inspire and encourage people to let go and turn up the music.” – Lola Lennox

Written by Lola Lennox and Carl Ryden, “La La Love Me” is produced by Annie Lennox alongside Dan Muckala and Braeden Wright. It follows Lola’s critically acclaimed summer single “Back At Wrong” which was she performed on The Kelly Clarkson show on NBC and received high rotation on Radio 2 (who added it to their A playlist).

Showcasing both Lola’s powerful voice and her inherent aptitude for song-writing, “La La Love Me” is a soul infused ode to escapism bedded in a soundscape filled with joyous colour and cascading melodies. Drawing on Lola’s predilection to daydream, it explores the concept of longing for a love that elevates one’s heart, mind and soul.

Earmarked as an artist to watch by everyone from The Sunday Times, Music Week and NME to Vogue Italia, Wonderland Magazine and Numero, Lola Lennox will be releasing her debut EP in 2021. The long player project will feature both “La La Love Me” and “Back At Wrong” alongside brand new tracks recorded in sessions with the likes of Eg White (Florence & the Machine, Sam Smith), Dan Wilson (Adele) and Dan Muckala (Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes).

Music has been in Lola’s blood from as long as she can remember. She has played the piano and sung from seven years old, written songs from the age of fifteen, and earned a place at the Royal Academy of Music. 2020 saw Lola duet with her mother, Annie Lennox, for their much talked about performance of “There Must Be An Angel” for Global Citizen One World: Together At Home to an audience of over 270 million viewers. While in 2019 she collaborated with Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory on the soundtrack for the “Serengeti” docu-series, which was narrated by Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong and aired in over 35 countries around the world (including the the UK on BBC and the U.S. on Discover Network).

Motenko – Waiting All Day (Spotify)

“Motenko with their latest release, on same title, which includes our pick - Waiting All Day, it offers us a soulful mesmerizing track with beautiful harmonies and gently groove, a playful solo guitar in a production which tickles your senses. Music that skips all your worries and force you to relax and enjoy the moment. ”

-Nagamag.com

Waiting All Day is a meditation on love that is unfulfilled. Each verse is a vignette about a different relationship that is somehow unrequited, and the chorus is about carrying forward in spite these muddled feelings.

www.instagram.com/mo_tenko/

About Motenko:

The saying goes you never forget your first love. For Micah Motenko—musically speaking—that would be Motown, a sound he swooned for at age 7. That music set an artistic ideal for Micah of well-crafted heartfelt songs, brimming with infectious hooks and smoldering grooves. Today, that love legacy burns from the self-titled debut EP from his groove machine, Motenko.

The Austin, Texas-based quartet formed in early 2018, and it’s a band of brothers whose day gigs are first-call hired gun musicians. Together, the players play a fresh but authentic blend of 1960s and 1970s soul, 1990s R&B, and New Orleans boogie.

“We want the music to sound like the stuff we listen to between gigs—like the music we all first fell in love with and made us want to play in the first place,” Micah shares.

Micah is the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and keyboardist of Motenko, but he’s first to admit it’s all a band affair. Motenko features Micah’s honeyed vocals imbued with a sweetly sincere quality of longing. His keyboard style has a vintage soul sensibility though it’s also informed by the playful and bold textures of hip-hop, neo-soul, piano-driven soul-rock, and modern R&B.

Micah is joined onstage, and in the studio, by guitarist Cat Clemons III whose play-for-the-song restraint and stanky grooves provide just the right amount of flair. Rounding out the soul machine is the in-the-pocket telepathic interplay of bassist Josh Flowers and drummer James Gwyn. You can catch them holding down Wednesday nights at the venerated East Austin venue Stay Gold.

The quartet mines the interlocking ensemble mindset blueprinted by the great rhythm bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s such as The Meters, Booker T. and The MGs, and the great Motown pit musicians. The band’s vibrant musicality is also informed by modern masters of soul such as producer J. Dilla, and the Soulquarians, the brilliant neo-soul collective the featured and worked with artists such as D’ Angelo, The Roots, Slum Village, and Erykah Badu.

Honey Made – Be True (Spotify)

“Honey Made teams up with Tamara Mack for song - Be True - , the #4 anthem of latest new album of Honey Made - Brand New -. Delivering us all the upbeat soulful grooves and vocals needs we have right now is this shady days, infusing us with good energy to step into the changes we want to make for the best of all. ”

-Nagamag.com

Be True is about being true to your authentic self. The approval of others is fleeting while being true to yourself is lasting. Being true means being honest with yourself and others without concern about the approval of others

www.instagram.com/honeymadeatx/

Austin’s Honey Made bring back memories of legends like James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, and Earth Wind and Fire with their modern take on slamming primal soul and focus on their R&B roots. Having shared the stage with George Clinton & the Parliament Funkadelic, Sierra Leone Refugee Allstars, The Motet, Lee Fields, Roxy Roca and Flow Tribe, the band has already made quite a name for themselves locally, and are currently planning on rapidly expanding their audience beyond the Austin scene.

Honey Made began performing in 2018 and has become known as one of the best live bands and party bands in town. As one reviewer said; “You can’t help but smile at Honey Made. Its hard not to delight at their athletic musicianship, their infectious hooks, or hairpin turns between the entire canon of funk feels-hard funk, hip hop groves, or James Brown – you name it, they did it. If that was all it was, I’d still call Honey Made a great band, but it’s more than that, it’s their willingness to bring you into the fold makes seeing Honey Made a great time”

Honey Made derives the diversity of sound mentioned above from many influences. These include James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings and Prince. Honey Made delights in bringing all of these influences into its music.

The band’s EP titled “Couple Few” released in 2020 shares these influences. This EP of five tracks includes influences of funk, rock and soul. The Word is Bond blog states that the self-titled track Honey Made (www.thewordisbond.com/top-submissions-ep2-apr-2020/)

“… is rife with all the goodies of the vintage funk-rock and soul jams from yesteryears. The production is super funky and edgy while the vocalists bring that catchy, call and response type performance to the forefront.”

The A&R Factory states that the track “Perfect Getaway” (www.anrfactory.com/honey-made-serve-up-sweet-soulful-nostalgia-with-their-latest-single-perfect-getaway/)

“.. contains enough Soul to induce goosebumps from the first few notes in the prelude. As the drippings of soul nostalgia intensify in Perfect Getaway, you’ll find yourself in an effervescently shimmering soundscape where every instrumental in the arrangement exudes fluid expression.”

Now the band has released its first full length record titled “Brand New” in November of 2020 produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos. The record is comprised of ten tracks of original music. The title track “Brand New” is about how finding the right person can make all things “Brand New.” It also speaks to the emergence of Honey Made new music and a new direction. “Chicken Sweats” is about one of the band’s favorite foods but also let’s the listener know that there is more going on here. “Be True” is a more of traditional soul sound. Then there is funky instrumental “Southern Fried Funk” and the feel good track “So Good.”

In a review of the album Take Effect Reviews states ( takeeffectreviews.com/november-2020-1/2020/11/11/honey-made):

“ An album that parallels the energy of George Clinton And Parliament Funkadelic, but also possesses the capacity for slow burning timelessness, too, Brand New is an excellent starting point for a band we will all be hearing much more about in the future.”

Honey Made band members include: Willie Barnes, Vocals; Donald Ford Jr., vocals; Brian Cokeley, Keys; Lee Braverman, Bass; Chris Barnes, Drums & Vocals; Mark Saldana, Percussion; Dustin Hunter, Tenor Saxophone & Baritone Saxophone; Joseph Marrow, Trumpet & Flugelhorn; and Donald McDaniel, Trombone.
